Additionally- as a dealer- I could sell you Yamaha MSP-7s @ 270.00....yes that is without a microphone....but these are mid-range studio monitors. That are far far far better than this Samson package. Just for a price compare-o, yamaha monitors @ 270 vs this package @249-
Now, can you see the quality difference?
This is truly sad- and let me explain why.
For one- this package a 'bargain' system, and by 'bargain' I mean so cheap an actual professional would NEVER be caught with this stuff.
Second- The fact that Samson (may as well be pyle, nady audio, or another crappy manufacturer) has a deal only with Best Buy- meaning Samson is going to screw over their actual dealers by under cutting them, and selling this stuff at Best Buy, etc.
All of you who are thinking about buying this- please understand, just like supporting Walmart/Best Buy/etc- you are hurting the actual dealers out there in the real world. In time- the walmart/best buy groups will be the only ones selling stuff because enough consumers have switched from dealer buys to crappy low cost junk like this.
Again- if you want to be a professional, and taken seriously- talk to someone who knows about audio. Not some high school kid working at best buy who will sell you this POS.
Lastly- this is an article on hot hardware? I guess based on the price it could prove useful, yes. But the idea that this 'package' is in some way 'hot' is laughable. Samson products are never used in professional applications regarding audio. You will see this stuff in places that got ripped off or can't afford quality- but make no mistake- there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING HOT/or AMAZING about this package. Purchase at your own risk.
